Capuchin Ordination

Yesterday 3 of our Brothers from the Province of St. Bonaventure got ordained along with two Jesuits and a diocesan deacon.  There were about 125 priests who graced the occasion and blessed the newly Ordained priests. The Archbishop of Bassein was the main celebrant and along with him was the Bishop of Ahemedbad. The ceremony was well organized and planned by the Jesuits who run the parish of St. Michael Manickpur. There were around 5000 faithful who wholeheartedly participated into the Eucharist. The Choir sang well and helped all the faithful participate well. The sermon was centered on Mother Mary and her faithfulness to the Church. He explained the role, responsibility and challenges of priestly life in facing the modern world.
